Mallorca is known for its beautiful beaches and transparent waters. There are actually more than 300 beaches and coves and it is not always easy to know where to go. There is a beach for everyone no matter what you are looking for and here we suggest our favorites!
Portals Vells is a wonderful beach with lots to discover in the southwestern part of Mallorca not far from Magaluf. A plus is that it is child-friendly and provides shade in the early afternoon. Many boats choose to dock in the bay to spend the day at the beach or to have lunch at the nice restaurant at the water’s edge. There are several caves and cliffs nearby to discover.
Cala Sa Nau
Cala Sa Nau is located about 13 kilometers from Portocolom and you can reach the beach both by boat, car and on foot (if you are up for an adventure). The beautiful sandy beach is surrounded by rocks and pine trees and offers crystal clear waters with excellent conditions for diving and snorkeling. There is a nice restaurant directly on the beach and the beach is wheelchair accessible.
Perhaps the most beautiful beach in Mallorca, or as many Mallorcans call it: the Caribbean of Mallorca. Es Trenc is over 2 km long, white, fine sandy beach with a turquoise water in the southern part of Mallorca. Nearby are the wetlands where the salt Sal de Es Trenc is produced and if you come early in the morning you can see flamingos at the salt fields. There are several restaurants along the beach and we warn everyone easily shocked that Es Trenc is a popular nudist beach.
Cala Portals Nous
The beach of Portals Nous (Playa del Oratorio) offers crystal clear water just around the corner from the exclusive port of Portals Nous. The beach has a blue flag and is about 15 minutes away from central Palma. At the beach you will find several restaurants such as Roxy Beach directly on the water, a perfect place to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
Cala Deiá is a beautiful pebble beach with rock ledges. You can reach the beach by car and park in the small parking lot which is quickly filled up with cars or to take a half hour walk from the village down to the beach. There are two restaurants on this picturesque beach, Can Lluc directly on the beach and Cas Patró on the cliffs with incredible views. Bring your snorkel and enjoy a wonderful day by the sea!
Es Calo des Moro
This is perhaps the most photographed beach in Mallorca, Calo des Moro, just outside Santanyi. You park about a 20 minutes walk from the beach and walk the last stretch. You can easily be discouraged by the crowd, but when you reach the cliff ledge and see the crystal clear turquoise water and the beautiful beach, it is well worth the effort. The sandy beach is small, mixed with large rocks and surrounded by rocks. Just next door is the small fishing village with the beach Cala S’Almunia.
Es Carbó is the perfect beach for those looking for peace and quiet. To get here you either park in Colonia San Jordi and walk along the beach past the beach Es Dolc (about 20 minutes) or you park by the lighthouse in Ses Salines and walk about 5 km to Es Carbó. The beach is shallow and suitable for families with children (those who can walk there). Bring a picnic to the beach as all it offers is the amazing nature that surrounds it.
